An automobile accident is an unexpected event. It can happen to anyone and when it does it can drastically change your life. Sometimes for a short period of time and in some cases permanently.
With over half a million licensed drivers in Edmonton and almost a million licensed drivers in Calgary, motor vehicle accidents are all too common. Even careful drivers fall victim to unexpected crashes, sometimes at high speeds and sometimes causing severe injuries or even death. These accidents are often avoidable, but unfortunately a small mistake or momentary lack of attention can have major regrettable consequences.
Insurance policies provide coverage of up to $1M and in some cases $2M to compensate victims of negligent drivers. Accident victims rarely claim anywhere near the maximum policy limit, and coverage provided is based on the type of injury and extent of loss. Although, money can never undo the effects of an injury, this coverage is designed to place the injured party back in the position they were in before the accident, as much as possible.
For this reason, a fulsome approach must be taken to ensure that a victim does not shoulder the costs of treatment, special needs, surgery, housekeeping assistance, and loss of income, or the loss of potential to earn income, for the period they are injured.
Victims of motor vehicle and other types of accidents must prove their losses. The knowledge and resources of a firm that practices in the area of personal injury law is a great way to bring an effective claim to ensure accident victims are properly and fully compensated. Call us today for a free 60-minute consultation and find out how we can help.
Because Albertans are injured in motor vehicle accidents almost everyday, all drivers are required to carry insurance. These insurance policies are in effect for every insured driver and provide immediate, no-fault coverage to injured parties. This coverage is also known as the "Section B" policy of insurance and is accessible by anyone injured in a motor vehicle accident. Even if that person is not carrying or named in the insurance policy.
